Máirtín Staunton Interview (Flute)

Episode 54 · June 17th, 2020 · 1 hr 10 mins

About this Episode

The northern flute style; working the bar at Matt Molloy's pub; capturing songs for posterity; on sean-nós singing, music as a release; life in Boston, and the regional sound of Melbourne

Again, this interview was a long time coming. We had actually planned to record it the week Covid hit so we pulled the plug. Now fast forward 12 weeks and we finally got to sit down, face-to-face, with Máirtín, and believe us, it was worth the wait.

In this episode Máirtín plays:

The Lobster (An Gliomach)
Tripping Up The Stairs
Anach cuain (Slow-air dedicated to  Ben Duffy)
McKenna Polkas
Long Slender Sally / The Gosson That Bate His Father

Bye bye,
